According to the AP news that a country coroner's official visited the office of Michael Jackson's dermatologist to follow up on a subpoena seeking additional medical records on July 14. And the doc was quite cooperative and promised to provide the documents Wednesday.
Being accompanied with his attorney, Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson's longtime dermatologist, had been cooperating in the investigation.
Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter stated to the reporters that "We are not investigating the doctors -- we are investigating the death of Michael Jackson and we are contacting all of his doctors."
Investigators have focused on the role drugs may have played in Jackson's death.
In recent TV interviews, Klein said he had sedated Jackson for past medical procedures. But he denied that he prescribed Jackson any of the powerful sedatives; authorities confirmed were in his home at the time of the singer's death.

On GMA Klein denied supplying Jackson with OxyContin and Demerol, drugs the singer was said to be addicted to.
He accused doctors who prescribed addictive drugs for the pop icon of being "criminals."
"I say that anyone who makes someone an addict or gives a person potentially dangerous substances directly to them to use, like propofol is a criminal," Klein told "GMA," in reference to a powerful anesthetic Jackson is believed to have taken prior to his death.
"It becomes nothing more than manslaughter or something worse than that," he said. By People's Daily Online/Agencies
